I have an account with a bare-bones cPanel based web-host and I'd like to run a CMS from this account. (MediaWiki or WordPress. I've not decided yet. I hope that doesn't matter for this question.)
There is a custom "easy to use" installer for both CMS packages within cPanel. Can I reasonably expect security updates to be available promptly? Or, am I better off downloading and installing over FTP if this is my concern?
Note that I'm not asking if the various CMS packages themselves release security updates, but how quickly those updates will find their way into the cPanel ecosystem. If there is no set policy, how fast have those updates taken in the past?
